[ north side ]
Near Verdun, France on October 27, 1918, after all the officers and sergeants of his company had become casualties Corporal Ahearn took command of the remnants of his company, reorganized it into a fighting unit and led his men throughout the remainder of the day with great bravery & ability. Later the same day he rescued a wounded officer in the face of heavy machine gun fire. His country awarded him the Distinguished Service Cross.

[ south side ]
When Corporal Ahearn assumed command of his shattered company he sent this message on the envelope of a letter from his mother to his regimental commander: "Have made two skeleton platoons of four squads apiece. Pvt. Kenney is made Acting First Sergeant. Am ready for any duty I am called upon to perform. Am ready for replacements. Signed T. Ahearn, Corporal, commanding Company C."
